Description Jan Stodola 2013-03-29 11:34:00 UTC
Created attachment 718039 [details]
screenshot - empty UID

Description of problem:
Advanced user configuration screen allows to specify user and group IDs manually. When user enables this option, the field with ID is empty by default - see attached screenshot. It would be better if there is some default value already pre-filled by anaconda (e.g. 1000).

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. start graphical installation
2. configure partitioning/package set
3. begin with installation
4. click on User creation
5. click on Advanced...
6. check "Specify a user ID manually:" (the same for group ID)
Actual results:
the field for entering UID/GID is empty

Expected results:
default value in the UID/GID field
